Style: pajama-inspired day wear

style trend comment

Pajama inspired daytime look | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

The slogan “I woke up like this” is literally taking sleepwear into daytime wear. The latest fashion trend is styling your pajamas for a comfy day time look. Granted this look wouldn’t be appropriate in a conservative office, it would be great to try out in a creative workplace. If you’re not quite sure of the head-to-toe silky pajama look, try starting with this gingham top and pair it with a pair of jeans or a skirt. This pink vest with the bold piping could segue you into adopting the trend. A little more adventurous? This belted kimono could replace your usual coat or these piped pants could take the place of your usual jeans. Or, try this dark floral print dress with the contrast piping paired with a belt to give it a daytime look. Then, when you get home, you could lose the belt and through on your comfy slippers and be ready for a nice relaxing evening. Would love to hear your take on the pajama trend!

Eyelet peplum

outfits comment

There are so many trends this spring that it’s been a difficult choice while clothes shopping. Sadly, I don’t have an unlimited budget (a girl can wish, right?) so I love it when I can find a piece that incorporates many current and “in” looks.

I found this great eyelet peplum top and immediately knew that it was an item I would able to wear into the summertime. The white color and eyelet fabric gives an airy feel and the peplum bottom gives it a feminine flare. To dress up the top and make it work appropriate, I would pair it with trousers or a skirt and pair it with either a cardigan or blazer. Are you trying any trends this season?

Linking up with Kileen from cute & little!

The look for less: Kate Middleton

the look for less comment

I consider Kate Middleton’s style very chic and classy. She has been photographed in affordable fashion as well as high-end fashion. Whatever outfit she is in, she always makes it look effortless.
Kate Middleton Erdem dress

This Erdem lace overlay dress is figure-flattering and has a very feminine feel to it. The detail of lace makes it the focal point of the outfit and she pairs it well with her neutral nude-colored L.K. Bennett clutch and L.K. Bennett pumps. How can you too get this look without breaking the bank? Here’s how:
